August is on the doorstep and the height of the summer, and indeed the height of the season is here and when the temperatures rise you’ll need to cool off in the Adriatic Sea. And according to the latest sea water quality testing the sea in the Dubrovnik – Neretva County is clean and clear.
The fifth regular sea survey of the sea water on the 118 beaches in the County was carried out from 15 to 25 July 2019 by the Institute for Public Health.
And of the 118 beaches 112 beaches passed the strict tests with the highest rating of “excellent.”
The sea at the Grand Hotel Lopud beach at Lopud, Blace beach at Slivno and Hotel Park beach at Korcula was of good quality, while the sea at Molunat beaches in Konavle and Mlini beach in Župa was rated as satisfactory.
During the fifth test cycle, the sea at Donje Čelo beach on the island of Koločep did not meet the requirements of the Regulation, and the environmental inspection issued an official prohibition warning against bathing.

The test results met the requirements of the regulation, indicating the cessation of sudden contamination, and the bathing ban was lifted.
